Colorado Gets to Vote – 2012 Caucus

It’s that time again, the Colorado Caucuses are tonight. The beginning of the 2012 election cycle starts tonight for registered voters that have declared a party affiliation.  Democrats and Republicans only. If you are one of those Independents or undeclared, you will just have to wait until those brave enough to join one of the two major parties decides on who you will get to vote for this November.

Yes, being an Independent is the same as being a sheep, no leading just a lot of following.  Don’t get mad at me, your the one who wanted to be Independent, remember?

The caucus system is about discussing the candidates qualifications, arguing over who is the better man or woman for the job and then voting on them.  We use little scrap pieces of paper and they are hand counted. No high tech stuff to screw up here.  We also decide who the precinct leaders will be and delegates to the County Assembly and also for the State and Congressional later in the Spring and Summer.

Colorado is not a primary State.

So we hope you are involved, doesn’t matter which side, we all have opinions, but grass roots participation is the key to Colorado politics.

Centennial Construction – Basement Finishing

Investing in a Basement Finishing Project Just Makes Sense

The economy continues to be sluggish. Housing is still down. Banks still aren’t lending.

Need more room but can’t sell your house? Centennial Construction has an answer. Look underground and you might find gold! No, not real gold, but the value of your basement after you have it finished.  Investing in a basement finishing project is a whole lot less expensive than buying a bigger home and easier to pay for too. Compare moving from a 3000 sq ft, 3 bedroom 2 bath home at $350,000 to a 4000 sq ft, 4 bedroom 3 bath home at $475,000 to finishing your 1000 sq ft basement with a bedroom, bath and family room for around $45,000 – $55,000.

The Villager Newspaper – Spotlight on Business – Grill at the Pines branches out

After operating as Rodney’s for a time, Grill at the Pines debuted last September with a new menu and attitude. By Peter Jones

If a restaurant reopens in the forest and no one has eaten there for a while, does it make a sound … or even a decent prime-rib dip sandwich?

Grill at the Pines may be challenged by location, in a woody area tucked away on the northern outskirts of Castle Rock, but with its sturdy American menu and emphasis on quality, the Grill has slowly emerged from the best-kept secret

Louboutin and the Little Red (Litigious) Shoes –

Louboutin and the Little Red (Litigious) Shoes –

Christian Louboutin shoes sued designer Yves St. Laurent for trademark infringement of its all red shoe soles. This week a federal appellate court will hear arguments in this case most insiders agree it is unlikely the appellate court will rule in favor of the shoe designer. Typically colors are considered function not trademarks. However the United States Supreme Court has ruled that color alone could be a trademark.

How does this affect your business? Are all your trademarks legitimate? Has someone infringed on your trademarks? You never know you might have a case.

Basement Finishing, Basement Remodeling, Kitchen Remodeling

Basement Finishing, Basement Remodeling, Kitchen Remodeling.

We survived the last three years without the economy totally tanking and we are seeing an uptick in the building trades.  Basement finishing or kitchen remodeling is one the best ways to increase the value of your home for resale or just for more comfort and living space.

While the housing market is still depressed making it more difficult for homeowners to sell, if you need more space you might want to consider a basement finishing project.  We added a  family room, master bedroom and bath (2nd), laundry room, and utility room in approximately 800 sq.ft. for about  $35 a square foot.   Nothing like the extra space for family and friends not to mention what we save in utilities by using the basement master bedroom during the summer months. It’s always cooler down there.

Contact Dave at Centennial Construction, he helped design and build ours and we swear by his expertise.
